DefExpo 2022: IAF to phase out Mig-29, Mirage and Jaguar fighter jets by 2035; LCA Mk2 will replace them​



Don't know what they quite mean by this, I guess lets see what happens:

" The engine will be manufactured in India. In this regard, we had MoU with GE for its manufacturing with 100 per cent transfer of technology. "

That's 300 jets (including Mig-21s) which means IAF will have to place an order for atleast 12 squadrons of LCA Mk-2 but IAF's chief recently stated that they're considering only 6 squadrons of Mk-2s. The punk is still talking about MRFA of 100+ jets...BJP govt would never allow some $30bn+ to be dumped to a foreign firm irrespective of the offset clause they offer. Dassault didn't meet/fulfill the offset requirements per the 36 Rafale deal and all MoD could do was levy a meagre fine of $1mn - hilarious since Dassault might've paid a lot more in kickbacks

As for GE offering ToT, I highly doubt it since American engines are the best in the world and no other country was able to replicate the tech. I'm guessing all they'd offer is assembly and source non-critical parts locally
